A KoniagÂ subsidiary has been selected to support the Agriculture Department‘s Office of the Chief Information Officer inÂ efforts to migrate USDA’sÂ universal telecommunications network to aÂ wide-area network data transport service platform.
Koniag said ThursdayÂ its Tuknik Government Services businessÂ will help USDA OCIO transition from the current UTN infrastructure toÂ USDANet.
â€œAs a former federal CIO, I understand the cost savings the new GSA EIS contract offers
federal government agencies,”Â Ed O’Hare, CEO of Koniag’s government services sector.
“KGS is honored to be part of one of the first five transition efforts,” O’Hare added.
USDA aims to transition the department’s voice, video and data services from the General Services Administration‘s NetworxÂ andÂ Washington Interagency Telecommunications SystemÂ contracts and Regional Local Service Agreements to GSA’s Enterprise Infrastructure SolutionsÂ procurement vehicle.
Tuknik, certified by the Small Business Administration as a small disadvantaged Alaska Native Corporation and Indian Economic Enterprise, offers information technology and professional services to the federal government.
